If you are looking for a warm home in a Victorian Villa in San Francisco, at a TOP- location surrounded by nice restaurants, between Fishermans Wharf and Union Square, you should book a couple of nights in Washington Square Inn! We were staying in this wonderfully furnished building at the end of March for 4 nights.
Our room was not very big, but nicely furnished (antique) and with beautiful material. The bed was comfortable, the bathroom well equipped but also a bit small. As this Inn is more like a private house (only 15 rooms) than a hotel, and with extremely friendly and helpful staff, it did not bother us at all.
Breakfast is served in a room with a fireplace or as room service. Fresh fruit, yoghurt and pastries will wake you up decently. At the end of the afternoon, after a day of sightseeing, a lovely glass of wine and some tasteful snacks are served, and it gives the opportunity to meet some other guests and to share their experiences.
We were very pleased by the location of the Inn. Situated at Washington Square, a lovely park with Tai-Chi practising Japanese groups in the morning, each group with different -soft- music, gave a sense of peace and tranquility. From Washington Square you have many possibilities for public transportation. There are a lot of great restaurants in the direct neighborhood, and do go once to "the Saloon", the oldest bar in Frisco!
When you will have to leave this great place, we can recommend to take the hotel-cab to the airport. No pick up at other hotels, their very comfortable car will take you directly to the airport for 50 USD.
On the whole: We can highly recommand Washington Square Inn!!
